does anyone have a pic of the k&n fipk kit?

i am looking for a photo of the entire kit, k&n's web site does not show any spacifics.the pic can be installed or not. i would prefer to see the mass air kit from a 96. i was curious if the kit comes with new intake runners or if it ueses the stock ford parts. (i am trying to justify spending the cash) thanks for the help guys!

Word of advice, just use the K&N replacement filter and save yourself some money. They work as well as the FPIK for the most part and you will save about $100.00. Take the $100.00 and put that towards a decent in-vehicle air compressor.

If you are bound and determined to do a FPIK check out Shilo's White Trash version, here is a link to it.

Re: does anyone have a pic of the k&n fipk kit?

the one dawg is talking about looks like just the filter on the end of the MAF sensor, I have a 89 thats getting the engine rebuilt, i had them put on the FIPK kit, i can get a pic after i get it back on friday. the only diffrence is i dont have a MAF sensor and i had two intake tubes that don't ever connect to one... we'll see what it looks like when she gets home

I agree with Dave, there is no justification for the spend. Perhaps at speed the extra horse or two might be worth $100 (not!). Better mileage? None you will likely ever notice. A standard K&N and maybe if you wanted to mess with the exhaust a bit (headers, cat back, etc.) would be money better spent.

I dunno that my white trash design would work with MAF, but I agree with everyone else: the FIPK is overpriced at best. Perfect example of a manufacturer throwing together some basic components, *packaging* it as a "kit" and charging way too much.

No! Don't waste your money on it! Only comes with the open element a bracket that you most likely will have to bend/modify that you hook your stock intake hose/hoses to. Oh, and the little hose to run to your oil fill neck. Unless, of course, you like that industrial grade vacuum cleaner racket that it makes. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Junk, as the rest of the board said, better to spend the $30-$40 on the drop in then take the other $150 and get a cat back as you have said.-Bob

thanks for the tip. it seems that i would get more bang for my buck from just a drop in unless i want to fab something.
